the obvious. america has to get its fiscal house in order. how we got here is debated but certain things are indisputable. we have two wars that have been paid for on the credit card. we had tax cuts that went to the high income americans that are on the credit card. we recently extended them at the cost of $700 billion to the deficit. we had irresponsible behavior on the part of wall street that required rescuing the financial system in america so that main street could fight and survive another day. and then that led to a collapse in the economy and 10% unemployment that required governmental action in order to try to stabilize the economy. we have a long way to go in restoring the economy, but that has to be our first mission. the republican proposal on how to address this budget in these continuing resolutions will fail. the reason it will fail is because it fails to do what must obviously be done if we're going to have long-term fiscal stability and that is put everything on the table. the cuts that are proposed by the republican majority, unwise as they are, cannot do the job. the

this week. what he means is i'm getting america into war but i'm getting it out within a week. what he means is we are getting out by relinquishing command. that's the worst possible way to do it. you want unity of command and it ought to come from the leading power, that's us. up until now that's how the on has run. on the ground it has been effective. now the idea is to shift it to nato, 28 christmas to go by consensus. which means any member can have a veto and run a war this that way. it can be done. terrible way to do it. >> sean: i want to go back to the idea that he wants to relinquish expand get out as quickly as possible. he doesn't seem to care about winning. is the only explanation i can think of why they keep shifting. gadhafi has to go. maybe not. maybe we'll nation build, create a democracy. maybe not. winning, if you are going to be engaged in a military effort, shouldn't that be the wayne goal? >> that's why i think it is about structure and appearances. that's such a detached ivy league approach. what the administration has said is the u.s. objective is that gadhafi has to g

commissioners are doing, all over my state, all over america. we have got to recognize that washington is spending too much, not taxing too little. how can we ask americans to pay more in taxes when washington is not even willing to cut cut $61 billion from our bloated bureaucracy? if i have a proposition from our colleagues who wish to raise taxes before we consider asking the american people to pay another cent in taxes, why don't we first drain every cent of waste from the federal bureaucracy? we will never truly dig ourselves out of this crisis and put this nation on a real path to prosperity unless we bring our spending under control. america's strength is not measured by the size of our government, but the scope of our freedoms and the vigor and vitality of the american people and their willingness to invest and work hard for the future. that's what makes us strong. endless spending, taxing and borrowing is a certain path to decline, and we're on that path today and we must get off it. so we know the threat, we know what we need to do. the economy is trying to rebound. so let's t
